Rainbow Run set to bring bubble fun to the Island

2 min read

Wessex Cancer Trust’s Rainbow Run is bringing bubble fun to Sandown Airport for the first time this summer.

The popular family fundraiser, featuring ten giant inflatables and five colour stations, will this year include two new bubble stations, making it more chaotic and colourful than ever before!
Rainbow Run – Bubble Fun will take place on Sunday, July 26th, and tickets go on sale today (March 10th).

Now in its third year, the 3km event has so far raised more than £70,000 for Islanders affected by cancer, with nearly 2,000 people taking part.

Wessex Cancer Trust’s Community Engagement Manager, Lorraine White, said: “We’re super excited to be adding bubbles to the mix at this year’s Rainbow Run!

“The combination of giant inflatables, rainbow-coloured powder paint and an amazing atmosphere makes it such a popular and fun event but we think this new addition is sure to make it our best yet.

“Please join us on July 26th and walk, run or dance your way through the Island’s happiest 3k while raising money for Islanders affected by cancer.”

The event, which is once again sponsored by ARID Design and Management Consultants, will also include live music, food vans and a licensed bar.

Entry is now open and you can sign up at www.wessexcancer.org.uk/event/rainbow-run-2020

Sign up by April 12th to take advantage of our early-bird ticket prices.

All participants will receive a medal for taking part and those who raise more than £50 in sponsorship by June 26th will become star fundraisers, receiving a branded T-shirt to wear on the day.
For the first time, there are also a limited number of VIP packages available.

If your business is interested in becoming an event sponsor, Wessex Cancer Trust would love to hear from you.
